In Iowa it is an aggravated misdmeanor to offer to purchase sexual services. So yes, depending upon the wording of the ads, you could be charged with additional counts of the same crime.

What did the ads say? That is, was it explicit that you were looking to exchange money for sex? Where would the police find these ads? In your mobile phone?
